Welcome to the 9th European conference on Deafblindness in Aalborg, Denmark, 2017

At the final plenary of the 8th European conference on Deafblindness in Lille 2013, the main conclusion was that the two “sides of deafblindness” need to interact and learn more of each other. There is a need to look at the commonalities across deafblindness and to relate the knowledge of acquired deafblindness and congenital deafblindness to each other in such a way that one completes the other. This is why when we started the process of planning the European conference on Deaflindness in Aalborg 2017 we have collaborated with ADBN to deal with this duality. The conference will reflect this exciting interaction. We are glad to host this conference and we anticipate in holding a conference of high quality and of relevance to parents, people living with deafblindness and professionals of both acquired and congenital deafblindness.

Information about fees, registration etc. will be on this site in due time prior to the conference. But you can already learn more about the programme, the members of the various committees, the organizing organizations, as well as about the city of Aalborg, travel arrangements etc. through the menu.
